6 Places to Cure a Hangover in Melbourne

With Sydney shutting down early, Melbourne has definitely become the best Australian capital city to party in. You’ll have no trouble finding a great pub or club, but you might want to plan ahead for what happens after the big night. We’ve got your bleary-eyed, slightly dizzy, hungover selves covered with the best ways to beat your hangover in Melbourne.

The Catfish | Gertrude Street, Fitzroy
Looking to cure the spins the old-fashioned way? Head over to The Catfish in Fitzroy for a tall Muddy Mary. Only $10 between noon and 5PM on Sundays, the drink is thicker and more filling than the usual Bloody Mary—perfect for hitting that still-sort-of-drunk spot. It might even be enough hair of the dog to set you on the path to being able to tackle their gooey, slow-roasted interpretation of a Philly cheesesteak.
The Journal Café | 253 Flinders Lane, Melbourne
If you want a cure that’s a little less similar to what you had last night, consider checking out the Journal Café on Flinders Lane. Featuring a seasonal menu of breakfast sandwiches, homemade baked beans, and other wake-me-up options to have with your coffee, you’ll be able to catch some chill in this book-filled café. Don’t stress if you get there and decide that you’re really hungry—they have a full-service restaurant upstairs with an exclusive menu that should do the trick.
Market Lane Coffee | Queen Victoria Market Food Court, 109/111 Therry St, Melbourne
Just want a quick cuppa and to get on with your day? Market Lane, a Melbourne fave, is the perfect stop. When you’re done with your flat white head over to nearby Shortstop Donuts on Sutherland Street for a sugary, Triple Matcha or Thai Milked Tea donut.
Tropicana Juice/Food Bar | 213 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne
If eating just sounds unpleasant after a big night, consider a different way to get your body’s sugar and water content back to where they need to be. Rehydrate yourself after all of last night’s, uh, dancing, with juice blends from Tropicana Juice/Food Bar. Tropicana also has a great, greasy brekky menu, making it the perfect choice if you’re with a friend who’s looking for some proper Aussie bangers and eggs.
The Japanese Bath House | 59 Cromwell Street, Collingwood
Plenty of people swear by sweating the hangover away, but if you’re not in the mood or shape to exercise there’s another solid detoxing option. The recently renovated Japanese Bath House in Collingwood is the only one of its kind in the country and offers traditional, gender-segregated bathing and sauna experiences. You can even spring for a shiatsu massage if you feel up to it; the bathhouse offers packages that include it all., Melbourne | 740 Chapel Street, South Yarra
Some hangovers just don’t quit, and Melbourne’s got a fix even for those. If you’re not afraid of needles (or you’re so hung over that you’re not afraid of anything), check out the much-hyped Hydration Clinic for a customized IV infusion. It’s not exactly cost-effective (the basic treatment is $89 and add-ons like Vitamin C can be up to another $99), but it’s worth it to be back on your feet after just a half-hour treatment. There are doctors and RNs on hand to keep an eye on the process, so all you have to worry about is what you’ll do with the rest of your day.
